16 STANDARD COST STRUCTURE There is no country in Africa that has done in-depth cost study to determine cost structure, however countries like Tanzania Most countries are continuing with benchmarking of the European model While some countries have charging areas, others use radial structure. Some advocate subsidies for local residential rates by lower residential rates and higher business rates 16

17 UNIVERSAL SERVICE FUNDS US EXAMPLE Federal law states a principle that rates in rural areas should be reasonably comparable to those services provided in urban areas (part of determination of responsible federal universal service fund distributions to companies) Federal law states a principle that Quality services should be available at just, reasonable, and affordable rates 17

18 UNIVERSAL SERVICE FUND The new Nigerian Communications Act 2003 provided for Universal Service Provision Fund Contribution will partly from annual regulatory fee Currently in process of bidding for a pilot project. 18
